las vegas, nv
70F / 21C
Total Time = 47m 50s
Overall Rank = 36/59?
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 1/7?
Pre-race routine:

jammed to some jimi hendrix, ate a disgusting promax bar and drank some water.

because i'm such a rebel, i wore the sneakers i bought yesterday! they were fine and i had no problems with them!!
Event warmup:

just stretched and went to the bathroom 30 times. (too much water)
  • 47m 50s
  • 6 miles
  • 07m 58s  min/mile

this was a very good run for me!!! i ran with some guy for about the first four miles, but then he shook me. i only walked four times and it was for 10s each time, which is pretty good. overall i felt like one bad ass mo' fo'!
What would you do differently?:

only walk three times.
Post race
Warm down:

ate an orange, drank a juice, chatted with people and secretly gloated because i got first in my age group.

i forgot to add the supplemental warm down when i got home. it consisted of a conga line with the dogs and i singing, "mom got first pla-ace, mom got first pla-ace..."

What limited your ability to perform faster:

i almost tripped over a six year old who was doing the race. i also had a problem with my lower abs hurting during the last two miles. i don't know what that was about...

Event comments:

this was a small, local race with very few bells and whistles. they were serving menudo after the race, but i passed on that. i'm going to a pancake breakfast at work in a bit and john from philly is making cheesesteaks for dessert. i'm not missing that for some tripe!
